School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-A clean, crisp design and a plain, accessible writing style characterize this series. Every feature is designed with the youngest readers in mind: books feature one short paragraph per page, printed in a large, sans serif font. For all its simplicity, the text is remarkably informative ("Lady Liberty stands 305 feet (93 meters) tall. That is as high as a 22-story building. At the time, it was the tallest statue in the world."). Throughout each volume, blue-limned sidebars feature "Fun Facts" ("The White House is the only home of a country's leader that is regularly open to the public."). The illustrations are plentiful, colorful, and captioned. An ideal series for newly independent readers. (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
